This pot grown Dracunculus vulgaris flowered recently. The photos were taken in my Clivia shade house because the the wind broke the complete growth and flower off at the top of the other bulb. The bulb has a diameter of 72mm. Following are some more measurements.

The height of the plant to the tip of the spathe is now 1285mm.
The total length of the flower is 582mm and the width is 187mm.
The spathe length is 520mm and the width at the widest point of the flower is 36mm

Beautiful inflorescence. Could you smell the pheromone?

Yes, the smell is only really bad for one day. The smell filled the whole shade house but did not attract any insects to pollenate it as meant to be.

One of my Amorphophallus paeoniifolius is showing life above ground now. I find all these Voodoo Lilies very attractive
